Hello! And thank you for visiting my blog.
My name is Ailsa and I am a 52 year old professional British woman who has always been creative, but has never had the time to indulge my artistic side completely.
Unfortunately I was made redundant in January 2015 from a job I loved and so this blog is a way of recording how I unravelled from the stressful life I have had and coaxed my creative side out of the shadows and into the light.
I paint (abstract watercolours mainly), photograph (with a Canon EOS-M, or my Samsung mobile if necessary) and I also paint digitally on my Samsung tablet, using a variety of Android apps.
In September 2015 I started an MA Fine Art course at the University of Portsmouth so recent posts are dedicated to the work I am doing there.
I have another blog about internet dating as three years ago I met my husband that way – have a peek if you need some tips!
Thanks again – and please comment on the art – I love to have feedback 🙂
